Why I Created Nelly's Truffle Bars

I started making bars to give my kids an alternative to store-bought candy bars. I knew there had to be a way to create sweet treats without chemicals and dyes that tasted great. After doing some research. I started to experiment in my kitchen, perfecting the recipe for my truffle bars. My friends and family loved them, and encouraged me to try selling them.

From My Kitchen To Yours

I approached my neighborhood Whole Foods store, and to my surprise, they agreed to carry the bars. I quickly found a small commercial kitchen space that I could rent, and employed a few friends to help out with production. The orders kept coming in, and more and more stores wanted to stock the bars. Doing in-store demos, I was able to witness people’s positive reaction to my products, and I was thrilled to see people trying the bars, and then immediately buying the bars!

Why Kickstarter?

At the moment, we mix, shape, coat, and wrap the bars entirely by hand, one at a time! As more and more stores request the bars, additional funds are necessary to purchase commercial kitchen equipment to keep up with the demand. We’ll still hand-mix every batch ourselves, but we need a machine for wrapping and labeling the bars, and other equipment upgrades. Please help us buy the wrapping machine so that we can expand our distribution and get our bars into your neighborhood store.

Why Bars?

Nelly's Truffle Bars are the ideal size to fit in your purse, your glove box, or your lunch box! Bars are the perfect grab-and-go treat that will not only satisfy a sweet tooth, but will give you that little pick-me-up that many of us need mid-morning, or mid-afternoon. Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from having one of our bars for breakfast (or for dessert)!

Is your Chocolate Fair Traded?

Yes!

Who is Nelly?  Nelly was my mom, who passed away in 1991 and is the real inspiration behind my passion for health and food.

We really appreciate our customers comments! Here are some of our favorites :)

I absolutely LOVE your mint truffle bars and your coconut truffle bars!!!I am beyond satisfied . . . with each and every one of your bars that I have devoured with delight.I feel that I gain immense satisfaction from each and every dense, flavorful bite!!  I love their richness.

Also, I especially love the fact that they are refrigerated. These will definitely become a staple for me this summer. The crisp chocolate crust is a joy to burst into with my teeth!!  I can feel the love that you add to your truffle bars - that love is almost more nourishing than the bar itself!!!  ~Elizabeth.

I am absolutely blown away with how delicious these (bars) are. And its not isolated to my personal flavor bias. Several of the flavors you have would be in the category of a "no go" for me and yet I'm literally in love with all of them. ~ Michael

These truffle bars are UNBELIEVABLE!! They are better than any candy bar I’ve ever had.I’m in love.Thank you for creating these nutritious treats. ~ Tiffany.
